#2 Joginder Sharma

We all remember Joginder Sharma for his heroics in the last over of the T20 world cup 2007 but in that same world cup, India got their second most expensive spell bowled by Joginder Sharma. In a match where Yuvraj Singh smashed 6 sixes to Stuart Board, Joginder Sharma conceded 57 runs in his 4-over spell.

#1 Yuzvendra Chahal
